Another day, another riot!
Mar 02, 2007
We only had a few hours in Lima but still managed to somehow get caught up in ANOTHER riot (they love a riot over here!) Not sure what it was about but we managed to catch a bit on film before the police let of a load of tear gas canisters making everyone run for safety, we wanŽt even in the thick of it and we were crying like babies- tear gas,not pleasant!
You've got to love the Peruvian laid back approach to security.....Due to a distinct lack of time we had to get a flight from Cuzco to Lima ready to fly out to B.A. When it came to customs the security man emptied my bag of the scissors that I stupidly left in there before delving deeper to see what else takes his fancy. After just about emptying the whole bag just for what seemed to be for his and others amusement he finally came across a little light that he liked the look of, he was so interested in the crappy light that he firstly offered me money, before saying heŽd give me the scissors back in exchange for it!!! Craaaaazy, anyway i was happy with the deal and away we went.
